4 Ford Vehicles that are Perfect for Canadian Winter

As a new year begins and Canadians settle into the coldest, darkest months of winter, many drivers are thinking about whether or not the weather would be easier to take if they had a vehicle that was better prepared for the treacherous winter roads of Southern Ontario.  

If you believe its time for an upgrade, be sure to visit Colony Ford in Brampton to check out these four incredible Ford vehicles, all of which have proven themselves up to the very worst that Canadian winters have to offer.  

Ford EcoSport

The EcoSport is the newest addition to Ford’s Canadian line-up, and if you drop by Colony Ford, your local Ford dealership in Brampton, you will find an incredible selection of these energetic SUVs, each of which is equally adept at navigating the crowded streets of Toronto and the open highways of rural Ontario. 

Ford Mustang

While the Mustang is legendary for its speed and aggressive drag-strip energy, it is also a car that is surprisingly well adapted for Canadian winters. If you test drive a new Mustang GT you will likely find that its power and traction allow it to take on snowy, icy roads that a more conventional car might struggle to master. 


Ford Explorer

Over the past twenty years, the Explorer has become a legend in its own right for being one of the most popular crossover SUVs in North America. Rugged enough to handle the worst that winter throws at it while offering enough passenger room and storage space to make ski expeditions and February cottage weekends a breeze, the Explorer is one of the most reliable SUVs on the road. 

This is probably one of the reasons why it also ranks among the most popular used Ford cars and trucks on our dealership lot. Built to last, and built to deliver, the Ford Explorer is a car that truly is made for Canadian winters. 

Ford Escape

Judged by CarMax to be the best SUV of 2018, the Ford Escape is a crossover SUV for everyone. Praised for its incredible handling, versatility, cutting-edge tech and the endless customization options available, the Ford Escape continues to be a favourite among critics and drivers alike. 

This is in part due to its ability to meet the needs of a variety of different types of driver. Whether you’re a weekend warrior who wants a rugged SUV for off-road adventures or a commuter who wants to make the most of new tech options like the MyFordTouch® infotainment system, you can find everything you need in the 2019 Ford Escape. 
If you missed the opportunity to purchase a new Ford in the last months of 2018, January 2019 is a great time to come down to Colony Ford in Brampton to explore our incredible selection of new 2018 and 2019 vehicles and our extensive used selection.
